Partial Set 2 Matrix composed of
A). Unknown aud http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=24765
B). set 2 SBD http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=76424
Aud was speed adjusted to match the sbd using Cool Edit Pro
Mix Ratio = +3 db sbd / -5.5 db aud
1. I removed several minutes of tuning before NFA.
2. The matrix mix is what I would call "FOB". The aud source has a few instances of loud
nearby crowd. If more sbd is added to the matrix mix, on parts where the nearby crowd noise
is clear, it comes across as though they might be on stage which is disorienting. I elected
to start with an aud heavy mix and increase the sbd portion to make it sound like a good FOB.
The location is on the Phil side.
3. I did not patch ~ 3 minutes of missing aud in TOO.
4. I needed to add a minor, ~ .1 sec gap in the sbd but this is more or less inaudible as it
was during a quiet moment.
This is an excellent set, (check out the WRS tease in TOO).

TOO is just completely astonishing. Check out the jaw-dropping Type II "X-factor" jamming starting at about 6:00 in TOO. Shoot, put on some headphones and listen to all of it!
There is indeed a lovely and very distinct WRS tease in there in somewhere that gets a little love from the audience due to its beauty rather than its familiarity. The NFA>GDTRFB>NFA is explosive and ecstasy-inducing.
Matt Vernon's matrix mix quality is clear, raw and super powerful with a "you are there" feel that is perfectly complimentary to the musical genius on display. There is an energy level, reckless abandon and musical freedom of ideas here that I think was never equaled again by the band. Or by any other band, for that matter.

If you're new to the GD, though, you might want to start somewhere else. This is pretty far out! In fact, I think it really helps to know what a "vanilla" version of The Other One (if there is such a thing!) sounds like before you can really appreciate the way this performance stretches it into unexplored realms.
And a small tip: click on VBR M3U to the left, not the embedded player. Then you won't get a gap between songs, when they really just flow into each other, which is truly one of the best bits. Most regular Archive.org listeners probably know this, but just in case you don't...
Small comment to previous reviewers: I respect your viewpoints, but... too fast? too fast for what? for you maybe? what if they're just playing that fast? Seems hard to believe, but this is obviously an unusual night.
And, for me, 1971 is the year they were FINDING their way after taking a bit of a detour in 1970. They didn't perform as much as in other years, but when they do it's nearly always exciting. 1972 is more perfect, sure, but I just love the sense of finding totally new things that are possible, in 1971.

The first half of the Other One is relentless and Jerry is totally going off in a big way in it and it is a extremely unique version.
The band plays with wild abandonment during it and the reprise back into the Other One is done with text book precision.
The set ending NFA>GDTRFD>NFA is searing and joyous.
Many minds were blown at this one and the yells and screams confirm it ;)

Shows like this make people like me who consider '71 to be more of a transitional year w/o a ton going for it seriously rethink their stance. Fall '71 has some moments that easily rival the best from '72.
